Welcome back guys, we are already approaching the middle of April!. I taught I would give an update on how my year is going so far mostly in relation to my goals. So here it goes:
TLDR; It has been a slow start of the year for me for me and my goals but trying to get back on track
In January I wrote this post about my goals for the first 12 weeks of the year and the new system that I was planning to follow. In that post, I explained that my focus was to continue focusing on doing as much programming/web development as possible and I had a few goals:
Goal #1: Release v2 of Zerowastestores – This was done and I was delighted with the results. I wanted to make a better design, add some features and refactor a bunch of code and I got it all done at the end of January. Soon after releasing it I realized I could improve it even more which I am currently looking at scoping the changes I need and trying to figure out what is the best features to implement first.
Goal #2: Implement and Release v1 of Portfolio Website – I actually started this goal early in the march and spend a good amount of time to think about exactly what I wanted. I also took the chance to do all the initial designs via wireframing before I do any code. This was really my first time doing my own wireframing and I really enjoyed it. Around the middle of March, I started my moving process so all progress on this goal stopped. I will plan some time out later on in the year to get this done.
Goal #3: Get 1st Freelance Client – This was mostly depending on Goal #2 to give a way to advertise my services as goal 2 wasn’t there I didn’t think there was much point in actively trying to get a freelance client. This will be planned for later in the year.
- CSS Course to Brush up on CSS
I do wish I had completed more courses but as the start of this year was a bit crazy for me.
In Summary, it has been a slow start to 2018 for me and I need to do some re-prioritizing with my goals and vision for the year. In particular, I need to be constantly reminded of my goals and my progress for the year. I will be tracking my achievements for the year via this Github Repo. I hope you guys are having a great year.
Until next time,
